After a day relaxing at the hotel and some shopping, our next day trip was to the Kennedy Space Centre. We enjoyed seeing all the huge rockets.
Another day, we spent the morning playing Mini Golf. It was a first for Ben and Ethan, and they loved it.
The next day, we took the boys to Lego Land, while Grandma and Uncle Graham went to Universal Studios.
We LOVED Lego Land. It was perfect for their age (and older), but there was only 2 rides in the whole park they couldn’t go on…. and I think we went on nearly 20 rides that day. We had a great time, and I would defiantly recommend it, and would love to go back one day!
One of our favouries was the Rescue Academy. We had to drive a fire truck to the fire, pump the water to put out the fire, then drive it back. The boys thought it was great, and they are very into fire fighting at the moment. They also enjoyed driving these cars
It was a great day at Lego Land!
Our next day out was Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Kilimanjaro Safari (ride) is the highlight of the Animal Kingdom. You ride around in jeeps like on safari, looking at all the animals. They have a HUGE area of real animals, and they come very close to the jeep. We had to wait for this giraffe to get off the road so we could keep going!
But the best part was Disney Junior Live on Stage! It was a 30 minute show that was like an episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. But with guest appearances from Jake and the Pirates, Handy Manny and Young Einsteins. The boys like all those shows, and LOVED seeing it live on stage!
Orlando was PACKED full of adventures and fun. We had a wonderful time! The weather was hot, but perfect for swimming and fun in the sun. We were sad to say goodbye to Uncle Graham, but we are hopeful that he will come visit us in Australia one day soon!
